Just for now.

Just for now....

Just for now

without asking how, 
let yourself sink into stillness. 
Just for now, 
lay down the weight you so patiently bear upon your shoulders.
Feel the earth receive you, and the infinite expanse of the sky grow even wider as your awareness reaches up to meet it. 
Just for now, 
allow the wave of breath to enliven your experience
Breathe out whatever blocks you from the truth. 
Just for now, 
Be boundless, free, with awakened energy tingling in your hands and feet. 
Drink in the possibility of being who and what you really are-
so fully alive that the world looks different, newly born and vibrant
Just for now...
---- (Dana Faulds)

These Few Words.

Pines at the old reservoir walking track at Langi Ghiran near Ararat , Victoria.

These few words are enough.
If not these words, this breath.
If not this breath, this sitting here.
This opening to the life
we have refused
again and again
until now.
Until now.
David Whyte

Wonderful poem by Naomi Shihab Nye
